[cheers and applause] rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out
to moderate this debate this evening. thank you to lynn university for welcoming us here and mr. president, it is good to be with you again. we were together at a humorous event a little bit earlier. it is nice to maybe be funny this time, not on purpose. we'll see what happens. this is obviously an area of great concern to the entire world and to america in particular which is to see a complete change in the structure and the environment in the middle east. with the arab spring came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women and in public life and in the economic life in the middle east. but instead we've seen in nation after nation a number of disturbing events. of course we see in syria, 30,000 civilians having been killed by the military there. we see in libya an attack apparently by i think we know now by terrorists of some kind against our people there, four people dead. our hearts and minds go to them. mali has been taken over, the northern part of mali, by al qaeda-type individuals. we hav

station chief, despite the statements from u.s. officials in libya and the libyan government statement from the very beginning that it was a terrorist attack. here is jay carney. >> i will tell you, based on the information, our initial information, and that includes all information, we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a preplanned were premeditated attack. but we saw evidence that it was sparked by the reaction to this video. lou: concrete evidence. well, the secretary of state hillary clinton returned to the public eye and one parent principal purpose. the secretary defended the administration, despite all of the evidence against it are the choices it made and the charges that they did not act to stop the murders of four americans. secretary clinton tried to dismiss those e-mails as credible evidence. we will hear her statement shortly. the obama administration has yet to find a possible reason for its refusal to communicate to the american people and explain the words and actions or inaction's when it mattered most. tonight, it appears that four americans ar

foreign policy vision with that of president obama's today. now this is amid questions about the u.s. embassy attack in libya last month. meantime president obama is reaching out to hollywood for support. president obama is raising more cash in california today. last night at a star studded los angeles fundraiser the president joked about his lackluster debate performance following songs from katie perry and stevie wonder. >> they perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. >> reporter: the president also accused his opponent mitt romney of backing away from campaign promises. >> obviously the governor knows his $5 trillion tax cut isn't too popular so a few weeks before this election he's trying to pretend it doesn't exist. >> reporter: romney is in virginia today for a rally and what is being called a major foreign policy address. excerpts from the speech have already been released. romney wants a change of course in the middle east including tougher sanctions on iran and he'll call on the u.s. to work with other nations to arm rebels in syria with weapons th
enough to secure the come pound, but clinton says when it comes to protecting u.s. diplomats oversea, the buck stops with her. >> i know there's been a lot of attention paid to who said what when. but what happened is more important, we were attacked. everybody in the administration has tried to say what we knew at the time with the caveat that we would learn more. and that's what happened. >> three separate investigations are underway to determine who knew what and when. >>> now back out live to san francisco city hall where mourners are remembering fallen ambassador chris stevens tonight. we are there now. >> reporter: a memorial for the ambassador started at 4:30, at san francisco city hall. it was filled an hour before that. that holds 700 people. they opened up one of the courthouse rooms right next door and began a televised feed in that room for the overflow crowd. people continue to come in to listen to the long list of specious that -- list of speakers. the san francisco mayor welcomed the gathering today and said that america has lost a true hero. >> we have lost a true her

. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer, and more prosperous middle east, allied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense spending is being deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of. and the perception of our strategy is now one of partnership, but of passivity. >> the presidential candidate last of it will be on foreign policy. mitt romney was speaking at the virginia military institute. campaign later that day in san francisco, president obama said romney is wrong to oppose the winding down of the iraq war. >> governor romney has a different view. he said it is tragic to end the war in iraq. he doubled down that believe in a speech today, saying it was a mistake. i disagree. bringing our troops home was the right thing to do.

these programs more cost effectively. it gets us to a balanced budget within 8-10 years. let's get to the military. >> that is what i try to find out about. >> he should have answered the first question. governor romney has called for $5 trillion of tax cuts that he says he will pay for by closing deductions. the math does not work, but he claims he will do it. he wants to spend $2 trillion on military spending that our military is not asking for. our military spending has gone up every single year since i have been in office. we spend more on their military and the next 10 countries combined. china, france, the night kingdom, you name it. we need to work with their joint chiefs of staff to think about, what are we going to need in the future to make sure we are safe? that is the budget we put forward. what you cannot do is spend $2 trillion in additional military spending that the military is not asking for, $5 trillion on tax cuts. you say you will pay for this by cutting loopholes and deductions without naming what those loopholes and deductions are. you are somehow going to do
preparing. he also has a day drop. i do not think he is used to people challenging him like that. i think he was a little surprised at the level of challenge. i did not know why he did not come up with some of the lines like a 47% in your sending jobs overseas. all things he had in his back pocket. he did not use them. >> strong jobs report could swing the momentum back to the president. >>one of the most talked about moments of the debate came when mitt romney made a reference to sesame street. >> i am not going to keep on spending money to bar from chinaborrow from china. romney's remarks sparked more comments on twitter than his nomination acceptance speech at the g-o-p convention. they also created the hashtag save big bird. >> two-thirds of those who watched the debate believe romney is the winner. nearly half of those polls say the debate did not make them more likely to vote for either candidate. 45 percent say they're now more likely to vote for romney. >> he joked about last night's debate. saying he meant a very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >>the real mitt rom
